Narendra Modi addressed a rally today in Dumka, Jharkhand as part of the BJP’s campaign in the ongoing Assembly elections in the state. During his address, the Prime Minister referred to the Muslim mob violence that has ensued across the country in wake of the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act. He said that those who are fuelling fire across the country can be identified by their clothes itself.

The Prime Minister said that the Congress party and its allies were creating ruckus across the country. He said that they may turn a blind eye to the mob violence that has ensued but the country is watching the events unfold and people are firmly behind the decision taken by the government and the Indian Parliament on the matter of the CAA.
Narendra Modi also slammed the Congress party for its decision to protest outside Indian Embassies abroad. The Indian Overseas Congress, which was until now largely dormant, had announced that it will stage demonstrations outside the Indian embassies across the globe to protest against the Modi government’s handling of the Indian economy and “India’s deteriorating condition”.
Taking the Congress party head-on, the Prime Minister said that the work that used to be done by Pakistanis earlier will now be done by the Congress party. Calling it shameful, he said, “Does any Indian organize any demonstration in front of Indian Embassies around the world?”

Muslim mobs have unleashed violence across the country as a form of protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act. These protests have spread to educational institutions like Jamia Millia Islamia University, where ‘students’ have resorted to the extreme violence of stone-pelting against police officials.
